a+t's fifth volume of the ‘Strategy’ series is dedicated to urban parks. Through a selection of projects, the magazine identifies and analyses design strategies with which to create accessible, natural paradises for the urban dweller.

To study the projects from the perspective of these strategies is to venture into the relationships that emerge between them, and – as a consequence – between the projects themselves. Initiated in 2010, the ‘Strategy’ series defines scalar scopes, evidences disciplinary origins, and composes a grid that overlaps the project to offer a new vision of it.

Increasingly, and at a faster pace, nature becomes culture and as this occurs, so continues the construction of an increasingly artificial and imaginary paradise lost. The paradises of today are those public spaces where multiple spiritual postures fit, where each one is built while experiencing them. Javier Mozas traces a walk in search of paradise, through 5 historical models, starting in the 17th Century and ends at the beginning of the 20th Century. Aurora Fernández Per identifies and analyses within the selected works design strategies and actions with which to create accessible paradises for the citizen.
